 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:5

Adopting a baby is a wonderful act of compassion and love.
API wants to assist you in creating a forever family of your own.
We can help with open, semi-open and traditional domestic adoptions.

In the Creating Families Adoption Program, Adoption Priorities, Inc. assists families who are completing a domestic adoption either through an identified adoption or an adoption agency. Identified adoptions usually involve a birthmother that the adoptive family knows and matches with prior to engaging an agency. For these adoptions, API is able to complete home studies, post-placement reports and supervise the placement of a baby in the adoptive families’ home as well as assist with providing services to the birthmother, and obtaining relinquishments of the birthparents. In an agency adoption, API would complete the home study and post-placement supervision including post-placement reports while the family works with another agency to match with a birthmother. API can refer the adoptive family to an adoption attorney for the finalization of the adoption.

Adoption Priorities, Inc. also offers assistance with completing a parent profile for advertising purposes. API provides consultation on the types of photos, format and letters that will offer the adoptive family the most success in being selected by a birthmother.

Completion of the home study usually takes about 6 to 8 weeks however API can expedite the process for your family, if needed.
